The best parenting pattern I ever learned
was practiced by my mom and dad
They did this throughout my childhood
and continue it well into my adulthood
I’d argue it’s the best lesson
to be passed down to me
Yes, they told me to stay away from drugs
to make goals that were both tough and attainable
to treat people and animals with love and respect
But the single best habit I grew up believing was as normal
as breathing in the air around me, is to instinctively say
“I love you” every time we are in each other’s presence
This is the seventh (#7) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write.
My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these 100-word posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!
